The Obsolete Gamer Show: Nima Fakhara (1979 Revolution: Black Friday)
 
Remember Kix cereal? Kids love it and moms will too? The

idea was the cereal was really good but it was good for you. We often applaud a

game when it’s well made, fun to play, but allso teaches you something you most

likely would not have learned on your own.


In the story driven game, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday you

play as a photographer during the Islamic Revolution in Iran. A period I

certainly didn’t know much about before this interview, but our guest who

composed the music for this game did.


Nima Fakhara was born in Tehran, Iran and has composed for

film, television and videos games. For this game he used traditional Persian

instruments to insure an authentic feeling within the game.


In our interview we talk about how players have received the

game so far which is currently out on Steam and how he feels the game

represented the events that unfolded during that time. We also cover his love

of music and his journey from Tehran to Los Angeles.
